    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Overall

    First off, I would like to say how I have always been fascinated with vampire lore and the mere thought of undead creatures that live by night and feed on the blood of others. With that said, Twilight was a bit unexpected in that the book's main focus was about true love found between a mortal girl and a vampire. I was easily pulled into Stephenie Meyer's world of Forks, Washington where most of the story takes place. The author develops the characters very will and goes to great lengths to explain and point out vampire strengths as compared to humans. Twilight revolves around a sea of anger, inner conflict, and unexpected, undying love that will keep you listening into the late hours of the night. Personally, I loved this book!

    P.S. For those of you who are looking for just another vampire slasher, check out Anne Rice's books. This one would not be for you; however, if you want a great vampire love story, I suggest checking it out.

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    Overall

    This was my first Dan Brown novel and after finishing Angels and Demons, I will forever be a fan! The story is brilliantly told and the narration is superb. It's clear that he is extremely well read and knowledgeable regarding his story content. His attention to detail and understanding of history is not only engaging to listen to, but also a unique slant on what could easily be believable truth. Dan Brown graciously and effortlessly embarks on a journey with his readers to places that many will never visit, but after the ride, you feel as though you've been there yourself and witnessed the events that unfolded first hand. I highly recommend this one!

    Six children have escaped government experiments, and a frightening brush with death. Living out in the world for the first time, they yearn to be reunited with Kit and Frannie, the couple who saved their lives, and to return to the cabin known as the Lake House. But before they can get there, they will face a horrifying evil, for one man has survived the laboratory that bred the flying children, and he is obsessed with reclaiming them for a new round of experiments - with an even more deadly outcome.

    Shannon says: "The Lake House, by James Patterson"
    "Pleasantly Surprised!"
    Overall

    This one has turned out to be worth the listen? Although not what I had initially expected, the story is cleverly told by excellent narrators and the characters are most enduring. Max and the other children are easy to become attached to, and you can't forget about Fran and Kit whose love for them is wonderfully conveyed. I?m very glad I checked it out!
